This is really sad. It looks like it's been in the junkyard for quite sometime judging by how much stuff has been stripped off of it. I'm surprised the steel bumpers are still with the car, while they're not in great condition they can be straightened and they are getting hard to come by.

When I see a car like this it always makes me wonder how did someone let it get to this state. It's not like this was a junky basic transportation '80s sedan that just got driven until it died, it's a car you'd buy because you like to drive, not just something that gets you from place to place.

The 907 Mk II was introduced in Aug, 1975. This article doesn't mention VIN or engine numbers, but if it's a Mk II, I'd also add pulling what's left of the engine (too bad the head is gone).

Just a comment on the article -- While no 907 is the 4-cylinder equivalent of a Chrysler Hemi, the "Torqueless Wonder" moniker applied to the Lotus Spec 7 (Federal 1978-80 onward). Since it came two years after Jensen closed, the J-H folk never had the 'pleasure'. Emissions requirements pretty much gutted it as it came. I've got two Spec 7 engines, but they didn't stay stock for long, and there's nothing 'torqueless' about them anymore.

Regards,
Tim Engel
